Patterson has produced two follow-up tomes on the America’s ongoing national security crisis: Unscrupulous DisregardAnd Conduct Unbecoming.

Patterson will add a weekly column, “The Buzz Cut,” to the RedState pages, in addition to providing his unique brand of policy and cultural commentary to both the front pages and RedState’s subscription VIP pages. Patterson, a former candidate for Congress, said that he’s excited to go from RedState Reader to RedState Writer.

“I’m thrilled to announce that I am joining RedState as a featured columnist! I’ve long been a faithful reader and, with all that’s going on in our nation, now I get to share! Please join me there and stay tuned!”

RedState Managing Editor Jennifer Van Laar calls Patterson’s addition to the roster a “huge win” for RedState readers who value sharp political insight that comes from personal experience.

“We here at RedState have long regarded Buzz as a vital voice in the political arena. Buzz’s personal experience is unmatched. In an era in which progressive misinformation is often passed off as news, Buzz’s voice is a ‘true north’ beacon. His addition to our stellar writing team is a huge win for every reader who values information and truth over sensationalism.”

Patterson’s weekly columns at RedState begin Monday.
